Shell is Hell
Shell claim to play a key role in helping to meet the world’s growing energy demand in economically environmentally and socially responsible ways. The facts are that this couldn’t be further from the truth; everyday Shell ruthlessly pursue maximising profits with little concern for the environment or the communities they operate in.
Recently it was announced at the United Nations investors’ summit that global investment in clean energy reached a new high of £169 billion. As a supposed leading energy company one would expect Shell it contribute considerably to this figure. But you would be wrong, Shell in fact have dropped their investment in most renewable energy sources, with the environmentally damaging Biofuels being the only ‘renewable’ they are investing in.
Essentially Shell’s environmental policy is non-existent, and they need you to tweet them one of horror facts we have uncovered about Shell.
Choose a tweet from below and give Shell hell.
@Shell a 2009 FoE report found you to be the world’s most carbon intensive oil company. Are you prepared for the future? #shellishell @Shell in 2009 you called #TarSands a “sustainable energy source” in UK ads. When will you learn what sustainable means? #shellishell
